ITAnano Phantom Carbon Automatic 49 Watch Review

Carbon Hands on Watch Reviews Independent ITAnano

ITAnano, an Italy based company, has made their play in the watch world by incorporating similar uses of technology of the leading sport cars and aero dynamics manufacturing into their watches. By using such materials as carbon, mineral fiber and polyfiber monocoque, ITAnano has certainly figured out their way of separating themselves from the everyday run of the mill watch companies. The watch we’re going to take a look at today is the ITAnano PHANTOM Carbon Monocoque 49 ‘Automatic’, specifically the PH4900-CB PH01R model which carries an overall price tag of $512 USD. I had the pleasure of sporting the “49” for some time, so please take a look at overall video impressions of the watch below….

One of the first things you’re going to realize about the Phantom Carbon 49 is the overall lightweight of the watch. As I mentioned in the opening of this article, ITAnano has separated themselves from the rest of the watch industry by using unique materials one would only find in the “higher” end watches out there. Constructed of carbon, the case of the Phantom Carbon weighs in at an ultra light weight of 13 grams. Now this is obviously without the movement installed, but even with all the bells and whistles of the watch, the Phantom Carbon weighs in at a total of 84 grams – strap included. For those of us out there that like our chunky divers, you certainly know 84 grams is next to nothing for the overall size of this timepiece.

In brining up the size, the Phantom Carbon measures in with a 10-4 case measurement of 49mm – 53mm in case to crown. For myself, having what some would call “small wirsts”, 49/53mm is a bit too big on my 7” wrist, but I was quite surprised by the overall comfort while waering the watch. When sporting these larger watches, I tend to wear the watches a bit high on my wrist to avoid the dreaded crown dimple on my hand, which can be frustrating at times. I have to say that I had no problems with “slippage” of the watch from the upper portion of my wrist as I would with heavier timepieces, and can honestly say the Phantom Carbon is a comfortable wear.
